How I spent my day
Category: How I spent my day | Posted: Thu Jul 31, 2008 5:13 am
This past Monday I came home from work about 10:45 pm.I had a message on my phone to call Kitty and a phone number.I called her this morning.It was one of my school mates from 1960 .I was a Freshman in Huntsville High School.
This is my picture in 1960 from the year book.
This is Kitty she was trying to find me for years.Didn't know who I married so didn't know my last name.
She found me from Ancestry .com
This is Kitty
This is my 5 best friends
Charlene ,Dorothy, Wanda ,and Glynda, No picture for Bonnie
I think the pictures are so funny and we were so very young.
I talked to Kitty, Dorothy ,Wanda and Bonnie for hours today had so much fun .We talked about everything we ever done I have laughed so much I hurt.
We are going to meet in Huntsville where we went to school in the fall. I left and moved to Madisonville and was in school in 1961.

This plant rules my yard
Category: Favorite plant loves to rule | Posted: Sat Jul 19, 2008 8:09 pm
I know I have showed this plant so much but it amazes me at how it rules my yard this year.Its so dry here and it is thriving.I pull it up moow it down,weedeat it and one is on my cedar tree ,on my
water fall figure on my headboard,and on my bird bath.I wonder when I will find it in my bedroom growing.
This is my water fall statue when the Passion vine started up it.
This is it on my cedar tree and birdhouse is almost covered and my plumeria is under all of this.On the right is the headboard with my Moon Flower Vine and Passion Flower Vine.Moon Flower not doing good this year.
I hope you can see the vine almost to the top of the tree.
The sad thing is its about the only thing in my yard that isn't dying .The grass is a dry crackly mess.I do have a few other things that are blooming but not many. I'll have to enjoy everyone elses.I do hope we get rain soon or my complete garden will be a thing of the past.
I hope you don't mind seeing this plant again.

I do hope you enjoy the pictures.
She did welcome me with a mooooo.
On her way out of the drive she seems to be saying goodbye.
She sure rides in style in a beautiful rig.

The things in my yard this week
Category: My yard this week | Posted: Thu Jun 19, 2008 4:29 am
I found this butterfly in trouble.I sure feel sorry for it but the spider had to eat too.
You would think this would have been a lesson to the others but I guess not.
These are my blooms today and tonight.
The white and wine hybiscus is taking off really good.
This hybiscus is so deep color wine but the picture shows it to be red.
The White night blooming Datura.
This is one of a bigger Datura plant this plant seed must have been tracked over to this part of the yard last year as my main plant is on the opposite side of the yard.
Another yellow glad is starting to bloom a little late this year.The apricot sparkle that got broke
some how is now about to bloom again.
One of my moon flower vines is blooming tonight.It also is struggling from wont of a good rain.
This is my mamoth sunflower but the flower is not as big as they usually get but with no rain it hasn't grown like usual.
My mandavilla is trying to start blooming.Two blooms
today.One in the morning and two tonight.
